Abstract

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the Gold Standard for the treatment of symptomatic cholelithiasis. There is still an increase in the rate of incidence of biliary and vascular injuries with laparoscopy. Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare but serious complication associated with laparoscopic cholecystectomy and bile duct injury. The diagnosis may be difficult. Our experience of a case of iatrogenic lesion of the right hepatic artery with the formation of pseudoaneurysm treated by means of embolization of the artery is presented here.
